After a 17 mile walk from Sidmouth the Devonia Guest House was a lovely surprise. I'm surprised that no one else has reviewed it already. Our host was very friendly and immediately offered to bring hot water to the room so that we could make up drinks. The twin room was enormous and boasted two leather armchairs, a hospitality tray, a flat-screen TV and a luxurious bathroom with a walk-in shower. Having relaxed and unwound we completed our menu card for breakfast the next morning. This included different cooked dishes including a choice between meat and vegetarian sausages, scrambled or poached eggs etc. The meal itself was beautifully cooked and powered us through the next leg of our walk to West Bay on Easter Monday.
The property is set back from the sea but within easy walking distance of the main attractions. It gave us the best of both worlds - peace and quiet on the one hand plus close proximity to central Lyme. I would definitely stay there again.
